Alvira J. Sobieski (Kohnke) – Alvira (Vi), age 78, returned peacefully to the loving arms of our Father in Heaven on Wednesday, August 2, 2017. She was born March 12, 1939, in Chicago, Illinois to the late Fred and Catherine (Lewis) Kohnke. Loving wife, mother, sister, friend, and devout Christian, she dedicated her life to serving the Lord and others. Even in her final hours, remaining courageous and faithful to the end, she worried more about her family, then herself, by giving the following advice, “Enjoy life, it’s too short” and “Be true to yourself”.

 She is survived by her Husband of 55 years, Michael Sobieski, three sons: Michael (Lisa), Matthew (Carla) and John; five grandchildren: Stephanie, Michael, Elizabeth, Gianna, and Amelia; sisters: Loretta, Lillian and June and brother, Walter.

 She was preceded to Heaven by her Parents, Fredrick and Catherine as well as thirteen siblings: Fred, Roy, Evelyn, Dorothy, Lucille, Charles, Catherine, Albert, Marie, Richard, Joanne, Lauralee.

 In lieu of flowers she has requested donations be made to Cupertino Home (http://www.blcinc.org/cupertino-home/ ). Cards and letters to P.O. Box 13, Wausaukee, WI, 54177. A celebration of Alvira’s life will be held at a future date. Remember as Vi always said, “Keep a smile on your face and a song in your heart”.
